  • They like mechanical best but they usually have lost all of them by Thanksgiving so they are back to using regular pencils.

  • Lead hasn't been used for writing since graphite was discovered in the late 1500's and what we call lead pencils are actually made with graphite. My son likes the mechanical style of graphite pencils.

  • I hate the mechanical pencils. They constantly loose the lead. Or they push it up to high and it breaks. I won't buy them anymore.
